Armitage and Moore's Guide to Song | 17-Mar-05

A new series of Radio 4 programme featuring poet Simon Armitage is to be broadcast.

Simon Armitage, whose poetry collections include Zoom and the Universal Home Doctor, will be joined by the University of Surrey's Professor of Popular Music, Allan Moore. Together they will examine some of our best-loved popular songs.

Simon Armitage will be analysing the lyrics of songs including cover versions, and songs that deal with fear and loss. How will the songs we all know and love stand up to a poet's scrutiny? The first programme will be broadcast on 5 April at 1.30pm.

For more information about Simon Armitage, see his website.
